Ambala: In controversial remarks, Haryana BJP women’s cell chief Nirmal Bairagi on Friday said incidents of rape have been there since the creation of earth.
She was replying to reporters who pointed out that such incidents have gone up in the state over the last two years.
“Incidents of rape were there ever since the creation of earth,” she said on being asked about the progress in police investigation into a recent Rohtak incident where a Dalit woman was allegedly gang-raped by five persons in a repeat offence.
Bairagi claimed the state government took such incidents seriously and all necessary steps have been taken to curb them, adding that “most of the accused” in the Rohtak incident have been nabbed.
Replying to another query, she said the executive body of the state women’s cell of the BJP would be constituted soon for which she was touring various districts to collect the feedback of active workers.
